Nanofat Injections & Skin Cell Transfer

For some years now, our team at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics have been looking at the nanofat and stem cell transfer technology and we feel now is the perfect time to offer this treatment out to our patients. For some time now, stem cells have been taken out of the body and re-implanted back in to repair or replace damaged tissues. We’re offering an innovative treatment to utilise this technology, applying it to the cosmetic industry; treating thin crepe skin in certain areas and various scars. Find out more about this advanced treatment below, and get your questions answered!

What Are Nanofat Injections?

To help you to understand a little more about this treatment, we’ve gone into a little more detail here. If you do have any specific questions however, feel free to get in touch with the clinic - we’re more than happy to help.

Nanofat is a liquidised and filtered fat that we take from a specific area of your body. This fat is then processed in a closed sterile environment, and the liquid that remains has a high concentration of stem cells. Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells which can develop into different cell types in the body during early life and growth. This makes stem cells key in the regeneration of damaged tissues.

Research has shown that there have been extraordinary improvements in skin quality after nanofat injections (after a 6 month period), and as a result, nanofat injections have started to gain a place within the cosmetic market, particularly in the rejuvenation of skin on the face and hands.

How Does This Treatment Work?

In order to carry out this procedure, we first need to take a fat graft from an area of your body, usually, this will be from your stomach or thighs. We will then wash this fat with saline and filter it so that the fat is ready to be injected back into the body, in the areas that require rejuvenation. We’ll work with you to establish which areas of your body have areas of thin skin that need treating as a priority.

What Can Nanofat Injections & Stem Cell Transfer Treat?

Some of the common areas that nanofat injections can treat are the following:

• Face • Hands • Neck and chest area

However, if you are experiencing areas of particularly thin skin on other areas of your body, the best thing to do is arrange a consultation at one of our clinics in Nottingham or London. That way, the doctor can advise whether this is the right treatment for you, and then recommend a bespoke treatment plan to suit your needs.

Benefits Of This Treatment

• Utilises your own body’s material and cells, so no concerns about foreign bodies entering your body
• Little to no scarring at the site where fat is taken, and no scars from where the injection is done
• Little to no downtime
• Minimally invasive, meaning that discomfort is also lessened
• Low risk of side effects and complications

Who Are Nanofat Injections Suitable For?

If you’re suffering from thin, damaged or aged skin then this procedure could be perfect for you. As part of your consultation, we’ll assess your individual suitability for this treatment such as checking you have enough fat available to make the nanofat. Make sure you get in touch to arrange your consultation at one of our clinics in Nottingham or London today.

What Happens During The Procedure?

Below you’ll find a little more information on what you can expect to happen during your Nanofat and Stem Cell transfer treatment.

• We’ll perform the procedure under local anaesthesia, which means that you’ll be awake throughout, however you won’t feel any pain. We’ll also use adrenaline at the area we’re taking fat from (the donor site) to reduce discomfort and bruising post procedure.
• In order to extract the fat, we’ll use a liposuction procedure. This can be done from various areas of the body, as long as they have sufficient amounts of fat. Generally, this will be from the stomach or the upper legs, but it can also be taken from the inner knees, the thighs, the buttocks or from your love handles.
• After injecting local anaesthesia, which minimizes bleeding in this particular area, a very small incision is made and fat is aspirated using a blunt needle with multiple perforations and a special aspirator. The small incision is closed with one dissolvable stitch. After we’ve injected the donor area with local anaesthesia, we’ll make a small incision so that we can remove fat. We’ll then close the incision with a dissolvable stitch.
• The next important stage is to filter the fat, we’ll do this by washing it and then filtering it to separate blood, oil and local anaesthetic from the fat cells.
• Emulsification of the fat occurs after shifting the fat 30 times between two 10-cc syringes.
• The nanofat is then injected into the recipient site with a very fine 27G needle or a syringe.
• The effect of this can usually be seen between 3 and 4 months after the procedure.
